Yahaya Bello: I Will Take Over From Buhari In 2023

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has expressed optimism he will succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

He spoke on Monday while featuring on Arise TV programme.

He reportedly said, “By the grace of God when I would have [been] sworn in as the president and commander-in-chief taking over from Buhari on May 29, 2023, Nigeria will have a heave of relief” he said.

On calls on him by some young Nigerians to contest for the presidency in 2023, he said: “When I assumed office in 2016, I inherited a state that was largely divided along ethnic, religious and tribal lines.

“I inherited a State faced with a lot of crimes and criminal activities. I was faced with a state begging for leadership. I inherited a state that required the binding of youths, women and all inclusive governance.
